A second "rebel" tour of South Africa, under Gatting — whom some had previously supported for a return to the captaincy, rather than Gower — removed a number of players from the England reckoning halfway through the summer, some of them regulars and most with at least occasional England experience, as no less than 30 players were tried in the six-match series — beating the record of 28, set only the previous summer: the players involved including John Emburey, the only player to go on both and rebel tours received the same three-year international ban as the party.

Major islands of the Lesser Antilles likely emerged less than 20 Ma, during the Miocene. The plates are sporadically placed throughout the book, and some species of birds are not illustrated.

    The course is owned by the water company, so greens are pristine. Until the early 20th cent. The FS Nevis dock is beautiful, especially during sunset. A generalisation?
